looks like a seascape !!! the foam of the sea at the bottom, the brown of the rocky islands right above. the only unrealistic part would be the sky.

You really do inspire me. I would walk right on past that dumpster and not see this. It's so beautiful. I love the ship and the boats on the white crested waves - the haven of land behind, and the amazing happenings in the sky. Incredible.

It's like someone tried to wipe the ice from a window to get a better view of a harsh storm at sea. Beautifully done :clap: :clap:

It looks like a painting of island that is being attack by a storm, and the waves are rolling

Starry Night was my first impression, I too love finding beauty in unusual places. It gives me a warm fuzzy feeling when that happens. Great shot.

This one is super-cool. A mini tableaux in some flecks of paint and rust. Nicely captured.

We can not be aware about the value of something when we think we have it in our hands. When we are satisfied we always think we will never feel hunger, when we are young we can never think that we will get old. We have no idea about feeling cold when we are living in a warm room....And we can never know what is loneliness up to the time you will stay alone in a dark of a hopeless night...You will look for a shoulder to rest in such depressive times. You will look for a soul close to you or just a body to warm you up.

And if you are young everybody thinks that you are right to feel it. Young ones must have each others... young one must be loved, young ones must be to care for...

Who will listen when an old hippie sings the legendary soundtrack of Hair musical, the lyrikcs are like that;
"How can people be so heartless
How can people be so cruel
Easy to be hard
Easy to be cold

How can people have no feelings
How can they ignore their friends
Easy to be proud
Easy to say no

Especially people who care about strangers
Care about evil and social injustice
Do you only care about the bleeding crowd
How about a needing friend...."

You may never think that I saw my beloved city ( Istanbul) at your image and remember my vanished happy days... Suppose you read my heart by posting that submission. 'cause your friendship cures my scares sometimes and reminds me that even an old man can be cared and dared...

So thank you very much to dedicate that photograph to me dear Rick, you give me strength to stand alone...:bow:

Your friendship is more than I deserve...so it is a gift of the greatest value. You are more than cared for Ayhan...you are love for the kind and generous soul that you are and for the great talent you possess and share.

It reminds me a little of those Japanese prints with The Divine Wind swamping the ships.
